I didn’t want to move too far from the AO with the coupons, so the day before this beatdown I was looking at Google Maps for anywhere closer to the AO than the parking garage with some elevation. And there is was.

This appeared to be a hill right behind the GRCC library, and I couldn’t quite see it from streetview for verification. I stopped by the AO on lunch and verified that it was perfect.

He mosyed over to the hill with Coupons and YHC explained the plan. We congregated near the entrance of the library, which is down about 20 stairs. This beatdown was a B.O.M.B.S DORA. While 1 partner was completing the reps, the other partner would overhead carry their block up the stairs, complete the number of blockees for the exercise they are one, then run backwards up the hill. Quite simple. They would return to their partner, overhead carrying the block down the stairs.

Overhead Press X125 (2 Blockees)

Merkins X150 (3 Blockees)

 Leader’s Message

F3 defines Commitment as the Q’s unwavering loyalty to the Group and unflinching determination to accomplish the Mission. To waver is to shake and quiver unsteadily, to be irresolute and undecided. Wavering men set an unsteady course because they don’t really know themselves where they are going. At most, a follower might wait until a wavering leader has picked a path in which he can believe, but the majority will have abandoned him long before then.

Equally important is loyalty, for without that there can be be no Trust . Most Leaders can (and do) have many faults, but no man will follow another man very far if he does not Trust him. A Leader who breaches the Trust of his followers through disloyalty has (in most nations) committed the capital crime of treason.
